Pros
Someone I managed to have a my row to myself on a packed bus, so that was nice.
Cons
The female staff who worked at Baltimore were a little rude, but I don’t really care. If I was dealing with that many people In a day I’d probably have an attitude too.
Tips
Sweatpants - always wear sweatpants and never trust the toilet.
